Afro-Latino Music: Sons Of Benkos / Hands Of God (2 Pack)

Afro-Latino Music showcases the influence and importance of African sounds, rhythms, and beats to the music of Latin America in this two-DVD set.

Sons Of Benkos shows the evolution of Afro-Colombian music over generations while exploring the presence of African culture in Colombia. The title pays homage to Benkos, an important Black leader in the fight for freedom during the era of slavery in Colombia. The title "Sons of Benkos" suggests the ongoing struggle for the recognition of African influences on Colombia's artistic heritage. Hands Of God tells the story of Peruvian percussionist Julio "Chocolate" Algendones, a legendary musician famous for his speed and dexterity on the cajon drum. Mixing traditional African influences with contemporary jazz, Algendones composed, taught, and performed many musical styles all over the world.
